Agra do you happen to know how much extra weight they are running in the star these days? Harley always has two huge sacs in his star. Bow triangle and a 1100 at the rear seat

yea both of those videos are with the "stock pro ballast" which apparently has slightly larger rear tanks (not offered to public), 250 ronix bags under each seat area (4 total) and in the Damien video 1100lbs on the floor.

so about 2100lbs on top of lets say 4k stock ballast+

Ruptured disc slows down wakeboarding a lot

Just me, but im not sure if see the need for a star then if you a primarily surfing. I find the stroage under the seats to be terrible as the "sub floor tanks" come into that area. And the Surf wave is on par with an x23 imho...

I like the rear facing seat design better than the x23 though and i like the over the engine storage compartment.

I could sleep under the seats on the star I looked at. Plenty of storage.. Iíd buy a star over a 23 but thatís just me

what are you talking about? under the long benches there clearly much less room than any 23ft current model boat ive ever seen. you can see the carpeted tank system?

We will also use the boat to wakeboard however we do surf more than anything else. Probably 70% surfing and the rest of the time is split between wake boarding and foiling. I demo'd an X23 a few years ago and it did not WOW me like the xstar did. I am sure with time it could have been dialed but with the stock settings the regular wave was OK and the goofy wave was really sub par IMO. The star's regular side wave is insane and the goofy wave isnt far behind. The boat also drives much better and is less sensitive to side to side weight due to the flatter hull.

weird. i found the opposite. i found the star to handle a bit more barge like with the deep whale v at slow speeds and the x23 to handle really well. i actually complimented my friend again this weekend about how well the x23 drives compared to the axis.
